by John Duncan

 The prestigious event, which celebrates British heritage, tradition and friendship with the United Arab Emirates, saw polo players from Britain’s finest institutions competing against each other with teams from Oxford, Cambridge, Eton, Harrow, the Cavalry & Guards and The British Army going head to head.

VIP Guests were welcomed at the Clubhouse with a Champagne Reception by Taittinger and an exciting and highly entertaining game of Camel Polo (pictured left) between representatives of the Cavalry and Guards regiments of the British Army, before the main spectacle of the day between the British Army and Habtoor Polo. In a hard fought first game, Habtoor Polo were victorious winning the Thales Thesiger Trophy 6-4. Charlie White and John Duncan attended the day.
